Get it back to dealer. I did with mine as clutch had only done about 5000miles from new. There was an intermittent squeal. complete new one fitted within hours. Mechanic said he had heard of clutch fault in petrol but never on a diesel ceed.
I would say that the cost would be the new clutch however I would beg to differ with a dealer who says that the pressure plates would not be covered by warranty. Unless they could show you with immediate confidence that the structural damage was caused by rapid slam and drop of the clutch pedal there is little they can do to argue the point unfortunately though if they argue and refuse as doe kia HO
Took car in to dealers at 0830 complete new clutch fitted before 2pm and the car was washed ready for me to collect. No charge. Excellent service from Piccadilly Motors in Ripon (Yorkshire). car mileage 6200m.
what I already know about engine temp outside temp load on battery battery charge state Well there is also time since last discharge as well and this has not yet reached the required value.

Im struggling to think of a reason for having a switch even on an automatic. Once upon a time the pedal was connected to the throttle for the engine and a switch to operate a clutch in the gearbox. Now the pedal operates a potentiometer and the engine and gearbox are controlled through software in ECUs a switch provides no more information about pedal position than the pot does. Software gives the designer complete freedom to tailor the pedal to power response with any characteristic of choice.
let me ask first - are they completely sure this cylinder is low on compression If lower part is OK then we talk about head gasket and valves. Also the spark plug seat may leak. However this would be very evident. I would check compression myself. Not that I do not really trust but just to verify. So what kind of noise is that Are you sure it is engine noise not clutch or transmission related
